Checking Tyre Pressures

The recommended tyre pressures for your vehicle will be found in the vehicle handbook or on a placard mounted on the vehicle e.g. behind the petrol filler cap or on the drivers door pillar.
Always check pressures when the tyres are cold, never adjust tyre pressures during or immediately following a journey.
Check tyre pressures every two weeks and adjust when necessary. Always refit the valve cap.
Low tyre pressures reduce the tyre's performance and increase fuel consumption. It is advisable to obtain a reliable pressure gauge which can be purchased at most motorist centres at a reasonable cost.
